 TSC Effect Appropriate Allowances In Newly Mapped Hardship Area

The Teacher Service Commission (TSC) updates its list of hardship areas on a regular basis. Tutors deployed to these regions are paid a monthly hardship stipend, which serves as an incentive because they are exposed to life-threatening situations such as poor working conditions and health concerns.

TSC announced on Tuesday 28th that it is awaiting the issuance of a revised map of hardship zones by the Public Service Commission (PSC) so that teachers in those areas can get adequate allowances.

Following a positive review of the recently concluded data-gathering exercise, thousands of teachers from four sub-counties are bracing for possible compensation rises.

Teachers in Nyando, Chonyi, Lungalunga, and Suba may soon be able to smile to the bank, as the government aims to put proposals from teams that gathered data on hard-hit districts into action.

Payment cannot be provided, however, until the official new hardship zones have been gazetted and a budget to capture the new areas has been approved.

Despite the fact that additional sub-counties received favorable assessments, the four garnered overwhelming approval, with some teams indicating specific zones and schools where the accommodations should be made

On September 5th of last year, the Principal Secretary for Interior Services despatched five teams for a countrywide data collection exercise intended at examining hardship areas for public servants.

Teachers in Nyando, Chonyi, Lungalunga, and Suba may soon be able to smile to the bank, as the government aims to put proposals from teams that gathered data on hard-hit districts into action.

  • Well,it is worth noting that suba and Mbita sub-counties have been designated hardship zones hence hard to staff.The big concern is when is the employer planning to offer compensation interms of payment of the allowances?
    Will it be backdated as at 5-9-2021?
